    ZCAR0001-0098: Z-positioning wasn't right, so I have corrected that so it engraves correctly

    I have added all the new leather items as well. You WILL NEED 70% or 91% Isopropyl Alcohol (Rubbing Alcohol) for the leather items due to the residue that the laser leaves behind.

    ZALC41-56 (Layout 46): Eagles was spelled incorrectly. It is now spelled correctly

    ZBOB0046-53 (Layout 0047): The letters HOME were causing you to not be able to change the state logo. That has now been fixed.

    ZPUF0060: Image was not showing up in the Launcher. It is now there with a few more layouts.

    (I have also added a few more logos as well.)

    Our apologies, some of you may have already received the faux leather items by mistake. These are in-house, but files and jigs are still under development. Samples, files, and jigs will ship/be available August 1st.

    The Summer 2014 Personalization Catalog (Scan Book) introduces some changes to make knowing which layout file to open easier. Products and layouts that are intended to provide dark or light engraving results now have a dark red D or L beside them to be able to match the product to the correct layout. Note that the terminology has changed from light/dark product to dark/light engraving. 230+ files have been updated to reflect the change in terminology. Also, power/speed settings for all light engraving layouts have been harmonized to 40/100. Please see page 128 of the new catalog (or the image below) for an annotated example. Want a longer explanation and some examples? See this forum post.

    Some things to note about new products and their templates:
    1. For ZBOBs, only use the ZZALP jig if the back side is routed to accept that jig. This applies primarily to ZBOB0020-0027 and ZBOB0036-40. All template files show the use of the jig for completeness' sake.
    2. For any layouts that have a "Dark Product"/"Light Product" pair of bar codes, note that "Dark Product" naturally implies "Light Engraving"; similarly, "Light Product" implies "Dark Engraving". The following lists which items are actually considered which type of product:
      • DARK PRODUCT (i.e. Light Engraving)
      • ZPNS0003
      • ZPNS0007
      • ZPNS0014
